Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index


I am having breathing problems. It first started 4 months ago. I went to a doctor and was given anti-biotics and other sinus meds. It went away but continued to breathe kind of heavy from time to time and had an off again on again sore throat/sinus infection. A couple of weeks ago I had another sore throat. I thought this time I had strep but went away. Directly after that I started feeling like my nasal passages were completely closing up. My throat feels like someone has their hand around it squeezing it and the right side of my nose sometimes hurts and burns and my nose is completely stopped up. Also feels like my nose is very very dry and can't get air through it. I have been feeling dizzy very often as well. I have alot of trouble swallowing at times and other times not much trouble. Sometimes it's much worse than other times but there is always mucus in my throat and sometimes feels like it's just hanging there and I cannot cough it up. Sometimes mucus just comes out without coughing at all.

I was addicted to crystal meth for 7-8 months where I used almost daily in 2007 and was snorted through nose 90% of the time. I have been clean since and I work out 4 times a week weight training and 3 times a week with cardio training. Don't drink or doing and kind of drugs ever. I eat a healthy clean diet. However, I have yet one last addiction. Smoking. I have cut down to 2-3 a day since this began and I am trying to quit. I was only smoking 1/2 to 3/4 pack a day before but I have been smoking for 15 years. I am 33 years old, 188 pds. Thanks very much for any advice, I have been very very worried. I have completely changed my lifestyle and habits and now this is happening. Thanks again.
